LEBANON, Ohio — Authorities in Ohio are looking for thieves who broke into a home while the family of a 2-year-old was at a funeral home preparing for the boy's services.
The sheriff's office in southwest Ohio's Warren County says the toddler died in an ATV accident last week. Deputies say the family was at a Waynesville funeral home with the body on Friday when their home was burglarized.
Family members say the burglars got by two dogs and broke in the back door. They took an antique gun and some jewelry.
Detectives called the break-in at the home of a grieving family appalling.
